Welcome and your my new favorite. Fresh cow milk is amazing. I can only get it in a few places.

I believe Mr. Round hadn't quite woken up when he responded since his fingers were slipping all over the keys, couldn't even get RE_Farmer's name right. And then he threatened the new mutant with sound torture (what he thinks is a theme song)!

Hey guys, I just read Steve's note there and posted one of my own. Here, goes.

Steve, I enjoyed reading about your exploits in the cavern and it brought to mind an underground experience Sue and I had around 1993, this one about 200’ below ground in London, UK. We were invited to go on a site visit at Angel Station on the London Underground Northern Line where a major reconstruction was taking place.

Angel Station was built in 1900. The twin 12’ dia. running tunnels for northbound and southbound trains entered and left the station tunnel which had an island platform only 12’ wide and single end access. During the 80’s, the elf and safety folk decided that this layout was too risky for passengers, particularly when two trains arrived at the same time. So funds were then obtained to construct a new station tunnel for the northbound line with its own platform and running tunnels at each end to connect with the original track. The project also included the installation of new escalators, the longest now on the system, to replace the old lifts (elevators) and I was heavily involved in the procurement of these from a French manufacturer. This connection I had with the project allowed the project manager to invite me and my wife, newly imported from America, to visit the site.

We descended the huge site access shaft in a cage down one side and walked down to the new northbound station tunnel and then north along the new running tunnel to where it would connect with the old track. That was when we saw an amazing sight – the outside of the original running tunnel. If you can imagine a bunch of archeologists digging around and finding an alien submarine buried 200’ down in London clay, that is exactly what it looked like with both ends still buried in the mud.

Miners were hard at work excavating around the tunnel in preparation for building a step-plate junction (a tapering tunnel) to allow for the splicing of the new and old tracks. They were installing props under the ‘sub.’ as, believe it or not, trains were still running through it, albeit at reduced speed.

That’s when we discovered that the original tunnel cast iron segments had holes in them, used for their placement. We then heard an approaching train and looked through the holes to see the passing passengers, totally unaware they were being spied on!

That experience is unforgettable and cannot be repeated. A few weeks after our visit, the old tunnel was dismantled, the lines were spliced and the new station is now open for business.

Welcome RE_Rarmer, RVM 161. I am RVM 114[/QUOTE]

Thanks, Wayne. Hmmm, RVM 161...I like the symmetry of it. I'll wait for another time for your auditory assault (according to Bokobird). Some say I took up space (as a former USAF Spacecraft Ops. Director), but now I'm just out standing in my field(s) diggin' in the dirt. While I can't say which "bird" I "directed", I know what happens in backyards - I've got pictures ;-)

Diwizi (da Wiz?), we'll see about Oct. Cows & the other farm staff don't let me wander too far a'field. We're working towards FT'ing. Ohms for your DH.

Suspinz, I too married a farmer's daughter, though some o'my kin farmed as well. I quite literally "brought the farm" a while back, after being forcibly retired (laid off) in '08, am eking out a living while waiting for DW to retire.

Thanks all for the warm welcome,
Dennis

The land under our feet is a bit errie when all you see is rock or rock & dirt. Realizing that you're a few hundred feet under the grass makes you wonder about your level of safety. I can't imagine being a coal miner for 40 years. I tip my hat to these folks. Claustrophobia would set in when traveling daily down a 4 or 5 foot high passageway for hundreds/thousands of feet in a motorized cart to reach your job's location.

My problem was darkness, wetness, dust beyond imagination, and the feeling that a front loader was 4 -5 feet off of your backside.

Welcome Re_Farmer and your DW to this bunch of wanderers.

We live in Indiana (just north of Indy). New MH in late 2010 now has 65,000 miles on it. Headed west next weekend for a two month trip. Our MH has been in the 49 states that you can drive to or through.

Tomorrow, a group of us muteys come together for lunch at our house. All are familiar faces. We always look forward to meet mutants that we haven't set eyes on yet. Time cannot erase some of the stuff we have seen at our gatherings.
